Well this certainly puts a fly in the oinkment, when it has been revealed Israels arch nemisis is in Fact Jewish. Name change aside, it does not change the fact the President of Irans family were Jewish.

A close-up of the document reveals he was previously known as Sabourjian – a Jewish name meaning cloth weaver.
